Felipe VI of Spain to address Parliament on Wednesday 

King Felipe of Spain will deliver a formal address to the House at noon on Wednesday. This will be his second visit to the European Parliament since becoming monarch in June 2014, following his visit to Brussels on 15 April. His father, King Juan Carlos I, appeared before Parliament twice: in 1986, months after Spain joined the European Communities, and in 1998.

President Schulz invited King Felipe to address Parliament in Strasbourg when they met in Brussels last April.

Formal sitting

Wednesday, 7 October – 12.00
